CGPA inspects Army Aviation choppers

The Philippine Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo Brawner, Jr. inspected the Army Aviation Regiment’s two helicopters that flew in a round-trip proficiency flight mission from Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija to the Army’s main headquarters in Fort Bonifacio on January 19, 2022.
Army Aviation Regiment Commander Col. Andre Santos led the all-Army aviators in a long-range proficiency training flight using the Robinson R44 Clipper II and the Bolkow BO 105M multi-purpose helicopters in a round-trip flight mission. The said training is part of the continuous skills enhancement of rotary-wing aviators as the Phillippine Army is committed to enhancing and developing a transformed and modern Army aviation to capacitate all Army aviators in its future mission supporting the ground forces.
Lt. Gen. Brawner lauded the Aviation Regiment for its modernization efforts, particularly in training additional aviators, rotary-wing pilots, and multi-engine rating personnel. He also commended the regiment’s efforts in upgrading its array of standardized doctrine towards its aviators to further capacitate them in a fast-changing operational environment.
“As you push yourselves in giving your best on your training, I commend all men and women manning the Army Aviation Regiment. Despite the challenging time and situation, you commit to capacitating yourselves for the development and transformation of our modernized Army aviation. You have all the support of the Philippine Army leadership as you evolve into a modern and capable Army Aviation Regiment that is a source of national pride,” Lt. Gen. Brawner said. #
